Part Eight-By Any Means Necessary!

When Rev John prayed and spoke it seem to many, like the world had stopped and what he had to say was the order of the day.
Even Dr.Roan lowered his head in respect for Rev. John's prayers Dr. Roan wasn't a religious man,but there was something about Rev.John's prayers that  even this religious cynic pondered.
Many stories abound about Rev.John's healing powers and prayers,there was one that everyone in Crackling knew to be true where the Mayor had asked for his help in asking God for direction in his own life.
You see the Mayor's  son had suffered from a rare form of cancer,they had taken him to the best doctors in the state up at Duke University Hospital in Durham,they had all but pronounce that there wasn't anything further that they could do.
It was hard for a White man like the Mayor to ask a Black man for help,years ago the Mayor was the Grand Dragon of the KKK and his attitude then was the only good Black man was a dead Black man.
But the Mayor had begun to change with the sickness of his son,he began to realize slowly how important life was,not just a white life but every one's life.
After returning from Duke Hospital with no hope of his son recovering,the Mayor picked up the phone and called Rev.John for his help!

Good post. God gave us sight and not just in "black and white", but technicolor. Why can't we all love every thing we see that He has made?

I’ve been following and enjoying your blog for a while now and would like to invite you to visit and perhaps follow me back. Sorry I took so long for the invitation.

I also am enjoying reading your blog Big Mac. I like your voice and "seeing" what will happen next. What happens with the mayor's son?

I've always felt that you have the eye of an artist, and the vision of a poet.

Looking forward to your next installment.

Black Diaspora:The topics on your site are a breath of fresh air for me, the exchange between you and one of your frequent posters Greg, keeps me looking at things with a third eye and listening with a third ear!
